Trespassing charges issued to driver, passengers



A driver and her three passengers each was issued a trespassing charge Tuesday evening after their vehicle was spotted driving through fields in the area of State Route 274 and Township Road 110 near Rushsylvania.

An auxiliary deputy of the Logan County Sheriff’s Office observed the vehicle driving recklessly through the fields about 6:15 p.m. and called the sheriff’s office. He then followed the vehicle and also observed it drive into the parking lot of the Rushsylvania Church of Christ, 170 E. Mill St. The vehicle reportedly threw gravel when leaving the parking lot.

The suspect vehicle, operated by Diamond L. Board, 29, address at large, was stopped a short time later on State Route 274. She was charged with driving under suspension, reckless operation, criminal trespass, and criminal damaging and was lodged in the Logan County Jail.

Her passengers, Brittany Kossell, 15, of 4758 Napoleon St., Huntsville; Jamie Branscum, 25, of 228 S. Detroit St., Bellefontaine; and a 13-year-old Rushsylvania girl each was issued a summons for trespassing.

Warrant served after domestic dispute

Deputies responded to a report of a domestic dispute about 6:15 p.m. Monday at 229 N. Dean St., West Mansfield.

They spoke with residents Margaret Payne, 37, and Jerry R. Birt, 48, each of whom gave conflicting stories about what had happened, deputies said. A report about the incident was sent to the Logan County Prosecutor’s Office for review and determination of any charges.

However, Mr. Birt was arrested on a Bellefontaine Municipal Court warrant for contempt of court and was transported to the Logan County Jail.
